I used this phone for a few years and I wouldn't buy it again though I bought it with the service and got a discount for it.
I mainly wanted a phone, nothing more, and as a phone it is doing its job fair, but...
1. After a while (not sure if software updates are to blame of poor hardware assembly), it started to crash during calls and failed to start, showing an yellow screen and the "Emergency only" message. I had to let the phone rest a few minutes before starting it again in order to boot properly.
2. I wanted to use it as a GPS when I really needed it and it was a nightmare. As it doesn't have GLONASS satellites, it takes forever to get a fix and it looses the fix often.
As a conclusion, don't buy it, unless you want to take the components out of it. probably an lcd and a battery for $20 worth the price.
Good phone, used it for 3 years.
Very good screen, good response times.
Dropped a few times. Light, good shock absorber.
You can not brick it. Softed many times, all kinds of ROMs.
Upgraded now to LG G2...

Also format your SD card it one of the reasons why phone is slow. And the last what you can do is to reset to factory default settings.

This I would consider the worst mobile phone I have ever come across. I have used it for almost 2 years and I am commenting based on that long experience. This mobile sometimes fail to even provide the basic functionalities like saving numbers or searching saved numbers. This is a huge risk when you are in an emergency situation. Another risk is that sometimes photos captured by camera are not auto saved, and sometimes photos saved simply disappear. Simply put, avoid this mobile phone at all cost, and the best decision is to avoid LG altogether when it comes to mobile.
TheBlurbMan, 01 Feb 2014I thought that Im the only one facing problems with this phone but now that I read the comment... moreThe camera looks like a 1.3 megapixels because you are too smart to entert settings and set the maximum resolutio ..i hate people that just want to show their fake intelligence
